DPRK ESL Fail


English is a tough second language. Especially American vs. British vs. Australian English and all their internal dialects.

One can run into ... challenges ...

Ummmmm ... not sure what to do with this; URR,
help a brother out - I think we can both agree that the Red Hoard has gone too far with their 25 May 2010 statement.
All the issues arising in the inter-Korean relations will be handled under a wartime law.

There is no need to show any mercy or patience for such confrontation maniacs, sycophants and traitors and wicked warmongers as the Lee Myung Bak group.

The Lee group’s call for “resolute measure” is as a foolish and ridiculous suicidal act as jumping into fire with faggots on its back.
Bigoted Commies .... but I repeat myself.


Hat tip Derb.

Faggots are bundles of sticks, used for kindling, if that is what you were wondering about.  Under the dear leader, there are no pooftas in NORK, and it would be hard to jump very far with a MiG 15 strapped to one's back.

At Baptist Summer Campos we used to throw a faggot into the fire each evening prayer service.
And aren't the Brits known to light up a fag every now and then?

Spade said...

Yeah, but it's funnier if you imagine it the other way.

"Hoard"?

Flaming faggots aside....

It is very likely that KJI's regime knows just what China is willing to back for threats or provocations against the US/ROK.  And with the Chinese in a position to tighten the economic noose of the US, our options become increasingly limited. 

The solution to this problem requires a time machine, in which we could travel back to 1993-4 and undo Les Aspin's disastrous "bottom-up review" that brought us the "peace dividend".  That review was a watershed, as it had as a planning assumption that we no longer had to be able to fight two Major Regional Conflicts (and folks, AFG is NOT an MRC). 

That review and the subsequent RIF of the US military (including a halving of the number of Navy ships) was a signal to China and to NK that we were not interested in maintaining sufficient military power to seriously challenge the ambitions of either nation.  Lo and behold, we haven't. 

We have to come to the realization that we need to rebuild that combat power, and the will to use it, in defense of our interests on the Pacific Rim and elsewhere.  China is challenging us, and we have not met it of late. 

Calls to China to help with the "Korean problem" are akin to asking Hitler's Germany to help with the problem of the Italians in Ethiopia.  Red China (yes, it is STILL Red) is the root cause, and North Korea is a manifestation of that disease, not the disease itself.

I dunno... the whole time comrade was babbling, that "Twist" song was going off in my head:

"I'm gonna sing my song,
it won't take long,
we're gonna do the twist and it goes like this!"

UltimaRatioRegis said...

"Let's twist again, like it's 1950,
Let's twist again, like we did that year.
You remember when we had all those commies,
Let's twist again, still got the Chinese here!"

I see SCOTTtheBadger beat me to the punch with the MiG-15 bit. Damn you SCOTT-the-ac-recognition-BADGER!

BTW, there's a guy who comments over at "Harry's Place by the nom of 'The Flaming Fairy.' Ya' think it was that guy the NORKS had in mind? :)

This post is about the funny parts of the English language.  I am having funny.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

For which I thank you very big.

<p><span>You must admit these guys play a mean game of poker. I have been to the DPRK twice and I am headed back again. Being on the ground raises more questions than answers but I do know some things. The propaganda is a complete wreck and I was reading this stuff before many of you were born and it is not getting better – it is worse. There are many reasons. The first is that anything created for use must be translated exactly from the stilted Korean government-speak Orwellian original. That is an ideological mandate. Therefore nothing is intelligible from the get-go. Add to that the requirement that they do not discern between internal and external, that leads to all kinds of funny non-sense. I was once part of a strange religion that put together words in a particular way and had a speech pattern of their own. The DPRK does this – it is never American, it is American Imperialist Aggressors. The Great Leader, the Dear Leader etc. It is literally newspeak. Add to this the fact that none of these people have been out of town and it gets even crazier. They reflect their own views of Korea-centric thought. They have no idea of what is going on outside and that we are all a bit smarter than we were in 1950. A carny could take these folks for everything. They are indeed treated as children. There are cultural contexts to the society that make no sense to even the Chinese. </span>
</p><p><span>The world went in a different direction. Even Cuba has measures of freedom far advanced from North Korea. The propaganda is hilarious and many times I have had keep from laughing at what they find as plausible. </span>

I have pity for the poor people forced to live in such a lunatic country...
Sometimes forced in more than one way, did you know they have been kidnapping Japanese citizens to use as trainers "in the imperialist ways" for intelligence agents?

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Have for years.  ROK citizens too.

<span>That's my favorite right there.  What a great compilation of insults.  I'm going to have to remember it for next time I disagree with the resident liberal in my Mommy Stroller Fitness Club.  Course I'll have to replace "warmongers" with "pacifists."</span>

Kristen said...

Zaruka, do you think the people there really believe all the propaganda?  I've often wondered.

Andrewdb said...

Spade - not really.

ewok40k said...

the beauty of the Orwellian newspeak is that it can be used against anyone, including in the original change of the Eurasia to Eastasia or vice versa...
